Course summary

A Masters by Research (MScR) programme is ideal if you have a clear idea of the independent research you wish to undertake at Masters level in any area of Italian studies, from medieval to contemporary culture.

Offered at Edinburgh since the late 16th century, Italian was formally added to the University’s curriculum in 1919 and, in the century since, has developed into a broad area of study. Join our community and undertake a project comprising research assignments and a 15,000 word dissertation under the guidance of an experienced and well-published supervisor.

Our expertise covers most areas of Italian cultural studies from the Middle Ages to the present, including literary history and theory, comparative studies, translation, film studies, philology and philosophy.

Training and support

This programme includes training on research skills, methods and problems. Between the School of Literatures, Languages and Cultures (LLC), the Careers Service and the Institute for Academic Development (IAD), you’ll find a further range of programmes and resources to help you develop your postgraduate skills, as well as having access to the University’s fantastic libraries, collections and worldwide strategic partnerships.

As part of our research community, you will be immersed in a world of knowledge exchange, with lots of opportunities to share ideas, learning and creative work. Activities range from regular seminar series in European Languages and Cultures (with talks by staff, research students and visiting speakers), to networking and editorial opportunities associated with our Edinburgh Gadda Projects.
